• Kevin Hart, Ricky Gervais, Patton Oswalt and more to headline New York Comedy Festival

    This year’s New York Comedy Festival will run Nov. 7 – 11. The schedule was announced this week, and as always they’ve put together an impressive line-up. The ninth annual festival, in partnership with Comedy Central, brings Aziz Ansari, Adam Carolla, Rob Delaney, Jim Gaffigan, Ricky Gervais, Kevin Hart, Artie Lange, Bill Maher, Patton Oswalt, Brian Regan, Marlon and Shawn Wayans and Robin Williams to the city’s biggest venues, including the Apollo Theater, Carnegie Hall, The Beacon Theatre, Madison Square Garden and others.

    Hart is slated to headline two shows at Madison Square Garden, an honor he will share with only a short list of other comedians: Bob Hope, George Burns, Eddie Izzard, Chris Rock, Andrew “Dice” Clay and Dane Cook. You can get your tickets starting on Aug. 13 at 10 am EST at NYComedyFestival.com.

    The schedule is up there as well, and more shows will be added.
